iowa caucuses tonight, many made stops in siouxland. one of the republican frontrunners, donald trump, drew a large crowd for his final stop in sioux city before the caucus. but this time his wife and daughter were also there for support. (nat pop "usa, usa, usa) trump said iowa hasn't picked a winner on caucus night in 16 years...and it's time for that to change. the billionare businessman mentioned his absence from the last republican debate. he said fox news treated him unfairly. "people respect the fact that i skipped the debate because i wasn't treated right. we have to do that; i wasn't treated properly. we have to think like that for our country. when our country isn't treated right our leaders have to do what's right for the people," said donald trump, presidential candidate. the support siouxland soldiers organization received a 100-thousand dollar check from the trump foundation. "a check of this size can allow us to do that critic work to serve our veterans for years to come," said sarah petersen, founder of support siouxland soldiers. the founder says they hope to

look at how this money can be spent. just a few blocks away from the orpheum, hillary clinton was campaigning to win the democratic nomination. this was clinton's fourth stop in sioux city since announcing her candidacy. and she made one message clear... she wants iowa's vote. there were about 460 people who packed into the convention center lobby. like her last stop in sioux city, clinton put much of her focus on the economy... starting with jobs. "we need more infrastructure jobs," "our roads, our bridges, our tunnels, our ports, our airports, our rail system, there is work to be done in iowa and america. and these are jobs that can't be exported." clinton also talked about debt free tuition for public colleges and universities. she said that doesn't include free college for everyone. "i want to give the resources we have from the federal government to help people who need help go to college," said clinton. "that's the vast majority of kids."

hundreds of booths and stations encompassing all news platforms. "over the course of a few m onths planning, and a very intense week or so of pulling together the pieces, building this thing out and setting up the property for the media," said stan freck, senior dir. campaign technology services at microsoft. candidates are continuing to campaign until the very last second, hoping to shore up support--meaning journalists here are working around the clock. but, it's not just american media flocking to the hawkeye state. iowa's reach is international. "people are interested in what's going on. in the end it's the president of the united states who's being elected and the whole process starts here,"said martin reznicek, czech tv news. reznicek is filing a report that will air nearly 5,000 miles from capital square. but, he's not alone. in fact, reporters from 18 countries are credentialed at the iowa caucuses media center. "anything that takes place in the united states that is major is considered as an important event in france," said mathieu coache, bfm, tv france "so, of course, this is very important, everybody knows that. the germans are very interested in american elections," said heather dorf- dolce, ard-german radio tv network. proving every four years will continue to feature a media frenzy in iowa. >> and they're not releasing the

"the work to get the uss sioux city to this point has taken two years starting with the keel laying here at marinette marine in february of 2014," said matt breen, reporting. saturday, another milestone. the christening... a ceremonial breaking of a champagne bottle on the ship's bow. "the champagne bottle gets broken, but this day is about the bonding... the bonding between the sponsor of the ship and the crew," howard said. "for the united states of america, i christen thee sioux city," said mary winnefeld, uss sioux city sponsor. "may god bless this ship and all who sail on her." mary winnefeld is the ship's sponsor, and now considered an honorary crew member. it was up to her to send the sioux city on its way... with one swing. nats of launch now in the water, work will begin to finish the ship, which is about 80-percent complete. the sioux city's executive officer, ken lieberman, says the crew can't wait to get aboard.
